Cool shot. That brings back lots of memories. That was a fun corner right there; you came out of a lefthander then while getting ready for the next righthander you'd get a bit of lift off. I dont care what the singletrack purists say, that course was a blast. I love singletrack too, but I had lots of fun at 50 mph down that course.Pete000 said:I work with this guy. This was a early duel suspension rig by Cannondale. I like the big front chain ring and the toe clips!
I raced Kaprun in '93 as well! That is a fun course. It was the WC final that year, if I remember correctly. Remember the rooty, rocky drop right after the gravel road? Someone has a good picture of me taking a big spill in training; with my Brodie doing a cartwheel over my head. Tons of fun. Still ride the Brodie, although most of the parts have died, and a hardtail is hardly a DH-worthy bike anymore.Michael Staab said:...raced the Kaprun DH in Austria in 1992 and 1993....
ROFL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I stressed 2 C-dales in 4 months and had had enough. They creaked and squeeked so bad and got so soft, that w/ one hand I could almost squeeze both rear dropouts together! I then switched to riding bikes made in Agoura Hills, CA.~martini~ said:HA! I had one of those bikes too. Last all of three months when I lived in CO. Cracked the frame AND the swing arm. Last Crackendale I owned.
Cool pic though.
